Arsenal coach Unai Emery confirmed at his press conference today that his side will be without four of their experienced stars for Manchester City's trip to the Emirates on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

Mertesacker retired from playing at the end of the campaign, assuming the role of Arsenal's academy manager.

Unai Emery also says that his message to the players on Sunday will be optimism when they face off against Manchester City who recently defeated Chelsea 2-0 to win the FA Community Shield, but the gunners will also be hoping to be at their best when they welcome them at the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Wright said: "They start against a City team who know exactly what they are doing, but this might be a good time to play them because some of their players are late back from the World Cup".

"We only have three players: Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina, and Joel Campbell, with the possibility to leave". Arsenal also signed veteran defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner - who is the Switzerland captain - and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who are also seen as strong personalities both on and off the pitch.

Emery speaks English far from fluently but his command of the language has improved since his appointment in May and he hopes his team have made similar strides during the summer. "For me, that is very important".

The coach said he expected midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles to start in that position against City, although there was a small chance that Monreal would be ready. "It's for that on Sunday I want first to be together with our supporters".

And the former PSG boss has already rung the changes as he attempts to get the club back on track after last season's disappointing sixth-placed finish. I believe in me, I believe in the players, I believe in the club. "But we want to play with the idea to create a winning mentality. And then when we have the space, to be aggressive going forward", Emery told Sky Sports. He gave us his commitment to this project.
